Eat: Que Ling Restaurant

My go-to restaurant for Vietnamese food in East Chinatown was Mi Mi Restaurant, but it might just have to be Que Ling Restaurant.

Housed in a house (literally), this mom-and-pop restaurant keeps the menu small by doing what they know best: flavourful pho and my favourite… bánh cuốn.

When Jeff and I go here, we would order a small bánh cuốn to share and order a small pho for myself and a large for him.

Bánh Cuốn Thịt (small: $7.00, large: $8.00) – with Vietnamese sausage

I think the small has about 5 rice rolls. Nonetheless, I love bánh cuốn and a lot of Que Ling’s customers come here for the bánh cuốn.

Phở đặc biệt (small: $8.00, large: $9.00)

Phở đặc biệt is essentially everything in a bowl of pho: tripe, brisket, flank, etc. Many, if not all phở restaurants would have a Phở đặc biệt on their menu.

The broth is flavourful, and not too salty. The only thing to note is the size. Jeff usually orders a large, but the large pho at Que Ling is more like a medium. If anything, there’s more room in your tummy for bánh cuốn.

Cash only.
